I am on line. Thanks very much for the great help
given by the people who replied to my requests.
I still have a few problems.
1. My type is too small. Figured out the [ctrl] + to
make type larger on webpages but the results are
kluggy and doesn't always work. I am using the
email client that came with the download. The type
is very small unless I go into the format and convert
the type to html.
2. How to upgrade from the version 7.x that I am
using to the latest version.
I have a computer that with VISTA. According to
one of the LINUX experts, who wrote me, I'm using
the Windows boot manager.
I attempted to do the upgrade from the Ubuntu site
but it gave me error messages and aborted.
Before I got information on changing the password I
tried to install 8.10 onto the computer a few times
with some apparent success but when I started the
computer it came to the boot manager that lists the
version 7.x (+ its recover mode). I would like to get
rid of the hidden installations and go with the latest.
After I get that I'll go to the nearby Barnes & Noble
and purchase the correct Ubuntu book.
3. I like to listen to CBC RadioOne but it requires
Windows media. Is there a work around?
4. I also like to listen to BBC Radio 4 but it requires
Real Media. My efforts to install it did not work (it
might help if I had larger text).
Even with my newbie problems I am liking Ubuntu
more than Windows.
